We had our biggest event yet at the Wine Loft. Thanks to Donna Francavilla, Julie Keith and Jean M. McLean, our outstanding expert panel, and to Pat Richeson of Redneck Debutantes for the photography.

Also, thanks to Bob Farley for serving as our hospitality volunteer, and Chianti Cleggett and Atticus Rominger for setting up the event.

Be sure to check out all the great photos, and if you’re in them, let us know! (Or tag yourself in the Facebook album.)

Freelance – Lipstick

From Tina Hatch:

I’m the editor of Lipstick magazine, a new magazine for Birmingham women age 30 to 50. Lipstick bills itself as “smart, fun and fearless,” and we’re looking for writers, artists and photographers who share those qualities (or at least aspire to them).

We’re looking for writers who can write features, profiles, short articles, etc. in a conversational tone. We assign 90 percent of our stories, but we also welcome queries. Artists are needed for cover art as well as for subjects of potential profiles. We like to profile at least one local artist per month.

We’re looking for freelancers, all experience levels. I don’t care as much about background as I do the ability to tell a great story, whether it’s through words or art. Interested parties can send clips or a link to their Web site.
